We were there to learn about Tropical plants but were disappointed with some of them. Poorly kept plants, some were outgrown with shrubs, missing and poorly labelled.

While apparently the gardens are large at 8 hectares, only a small arear open with many paths blocked and areas closed, despite the garden map indicating otherwise. Nice for a short visit and there's a fabulous swing. We took the guided tour which was informative...More

These vast gardens are breathtaking. An audioguide is available (no extra xcharge), introducing you to all that you see. The guide is detailed (about 60 spots), but a n "express" (about 13 stops) is also offered. I recommend going early in the day, when you...More
